What Am I Listening To: Brand X

Having mentioned Beady Belle in a previous post, I thought it would make sense to go through some of the music I like in alphabetical order. This band represent one of my earliest experiences of realising that music could be complex and interesting. In my opinion they are one of the least appreciated ‘jazz rock’ bands to emerge from the 1970’s, so here is my miniscule contribution encouraging more people to listen to them. In addition to  their guitarist John Goodsall (A hero of mine as a 15 year old), they featured a Jaco influenced bassist Percy Jones (or did he influence Jaco??) and wait for it – Phil Collins on drums (on some albums). In short, if you like guitar led Jazz Rock – listen to this Spotify link.

F,inally, here is a You Tube link of an incarnation of the band playing in 1997
